    16,000 feet up, the world is different. Being in the clouds brings enthrallment and humiliation. Making it to the a peak of a volcano is not easy. The journey is exhilarating but yet it takes the energy out of you. As you feel less and less air you must fight for every breath. The journey is not an easy one nor is one you may even finish but it is one worth fighting for. The climb, will not always be an uphill one but every step can be just as difficult. This adventure will only foreshadow the journeys to come.
